Hence, as a token of gratitude the group was eagerly willing to facilitate the Vice Chancellor a day ahead of bidding adieu to his office in Aligarh Muslim University on January 17, 2012.

Along with the AMU Vice Chancellor, the highlight of the ceremony was M.A.A.

AMUCC farewell ceremony was jointly organized by the group mentors Kamal Farooqui – former Chairman Delhi Minority Commission, Khwaja Shahid –President AMU Old Boys Association Delhi. In fact, the AMUCC group came into existence about two years back in presence of Kamal Farooqui and Khwaja Shahid at New Horizon Public School in New Delhi during a meeting with AMU Vice Chancellor.

The Vice Chancellor of AMU lauded the contribution of AMUCC during his speech and said “Of course, the AMU Kishanganj reached to the agreement day on December 30, 2011, but when the history of this centre will be written, one can’t forget the AMUCC’s effort.”


“Really this coordination committee has done a commendable job in the past, and I am sure they will continue their endeavor ahead”, said Prof. Azis.


The AMU VC mentioned, “You guys are doing well and my best wishes is with AMUCC. I am always available for any issue related to AMU Kishanganj”.


The AMU Vice Chancellor signed off with a positive note addressing the AMUCC, “This is not the end my dear all, our association will continue forever”.

The farewell ceremony ended with tears rolling out of the eyes of the AMU Vice Chancellor and AMUCC members.


The old boys of AMU including Khwaja Shahid mentioned in last 40 years history of Aligarh Muslim University they had not witnessed such a nice person and development pro Vice Chancellor.


Fact is that, in the recent past for a couple of decades the farewell is not given to any Vice Chancellor especially in New Delhi.


The AMU Vice Chancellor was highly elated and emotional, and offered hug to all the members of AMUCC one by one.
